About the Webinar
The costs and time associated with protecting privileged material among the tide of rapidly expanding data is a well-documented challenge that continues to develop. While much of that development focuses on mining the data for privileged material, this program steps back to examine the fundamental legal considerations that must be considered as the starting point of protecting privilege through an information governance program or in ediscovery.
Adhering to the maxim of “garbage in, garbage out,” the program will begin by addressing the business purpose of privilege to an organizational client, such as a corporation. We will then examine the manner in which privileged communications arise within such an organization, including best practices to protect privileged communications, and associated strategic considerations. Finally, we will highlight some traps for the unwary that arise during ediscovery, particularly in connection with Federal Rule of Evidence 502.
Throughout these topics, we will discuss the costs and benefits associated with both the creation and defense of privileged material, with an emphasis on the important role that paralegals play in enhancing the benefits of privileged material while converting costs into meaningful business investments.
